Price : $550 SOLD!


This exquisite box is a creation of Taisiya Danchenko. It shows the beautiful actress of the nineteenth century flirting with her suitor. At the background the artist depicts the interior of a theatre. The elegance of the actress's costume is accentuated by gold metal leaf inlaid into the stylish bird decoration of the actress's hat. Here the artist has managed to express coquetry of the actress and passion of her suitor. Elaborately painted this composition is filled with romanticism of the nineteenth century.
The composition is framed with a simple gold swirling pattern. An intricate gold floral design can be found wrapping around the box's sides. The exterior of the box is covered with cream lacquer whereas the interior is traditionally covered with red lacquer. To imitate a stone color the artist has covered the cream surface of the box's exterior with tiny and very thin grey veins.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino and the title ("Interest").
